Hi,

Is there a limit to the amount of scrap paper given for the exam? I have heard that there is a limit of 7 pages. If that's true, does that limit apply to each section or both sections? If there is a limit, then when taking practice exams, I would like to observe the same conditions.

Thanks,

Sam

I believe it is 6. But someone who has taken the GMAT might be able to answer better!

Yes Gayathri is right, you are given 6 sheets of scratch paper. You can ask for more but you need to turn in your used scratch paper. I suggest that you do it during the 5 min break.

I got 6 A4 sheets initially. There are stapled, but I was allowed to separate them. Each sheet had on one side a large heading (saying: scrap paper, etc) which takes about 20% of one page. The ones I got were darkish blue, so they were not ideal. When I needed more, I handed the ones I used and I got 6 more. I also got 4-5 pencils, earplugs and ear defenders when I entered the room.
